There is no cause for alarm with Daniel Murphy being out of Aguilas' lineup in the Dominican Republic since Tuesday, according to the winter-league team's GM, Luichy Sanchez.

"Murphy has tired legs," Sanchez told ESPN's Enrique Rojas. "Aguilas and Mets trainers agree he needs five consecutive days resting. Murphy will be back Tuesday. He doesn't have injuries -- only fatigue -- because he played all of Aguilas' games. He's the most consistent Aguilas player this season in all ways."

Murphy, who very well could end up the Mets' Opening Day second baseman, "will be an important to us next season," according to one member of the Mets' braintrust. He is hitting .320 with four homers and 22 RBIs in 103 at-bats over 28 games games with Aguilas.
